Members' Best 2018

membersbest2018_lead.jpg

If we are to use a single word to define and describe the stories and photos our readers have shared with us this year, there is only one that truly stands out: tradition. It runs strong in you, the American hunter, and in the legacy you carry and continue to share with those around you.

Your hunts over the last year involved a plethora of connections ranging from spouses and parents, siblings and children, and friends and neighbors. Regardless of the nature of the association, it’s the assemblage of like-minded outdoorsmen and women, the willingness to mentor those new to the sport we love, and the unstoppable drive to share and uphold our customs that will continue to preserve our way of life for years to come.

These eight pages highlight you, dear reader, for keeping the tradition alive and well. We at American Hunter are proud to present a small sampling of your successes stemming from traditions to which you’ve held fast, and the ones you’ve recently created.
